Blood Drive: Help Save Lives

November 11 at 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
| Main Campus | Richard Harris Terrace

New York’s blood supply has never been lower, and New York Blood Center (NYBC) is urgently calling for donors. There has been a significant decline in regular blood donors, and the region’s supply has reached critically low levels. In order to maintain a safe blood supply, a seven-day inventory of all blood types must be continually replenished. Right now, reserves are below that minimum.

It only takes one hour to donate, and a single donation can be used to save multiple lives. Those in need include: cancer patients, accident, burn, or trauma victims, newborn babies and their mothers, transplant recipients, surgery patients, chronically transfused patients suffering from sickle cell disease and many more.

Refreshments will be available after you have donated blood.

Please sign up to donate blood (November 11)

There are openings to donate blood on November 12 as well.

Learn more about donating blood.

This blood drive is co-sponsored by BMCC/CUNY and the New York Blood Center and it is open to all BMCC students, faculty and staff.

For more information, contact Penelope Jordan at pjordan@bmcc.cuny.edu.
